In order to be eligible the game has to be based on the movie, not the book. Usually, the art will tell me if eligible. I am only using games I have played.

I really like this game. Sure, the theme helps. I enjoy the back and forth.

I might be cheating a little as there is tv elements in this game (Voyger, etc), but there is enough in here that is included in the movie. Fun battle game, the components are on the cheap side (I like the minis).

The art is from the movie, so I'm counting it. This is a great kid's game and adults can play it. I wish there was an expansion to follow the rest of the years. The later years move a little too quickly, but a very good game (especially for kids).

This is really another hybrid (tv/movie), but I am okay with that. I do enjoy this game and it has some slight upgrades over TNG. Really, if you have to choose it depends on which show/movie you like better.

Yes, this is probably based on the TV Show, but there were enough movies that I'm comfortable with it being a hybrid. I do like this deck builder and it is fun. It has flaws and some backlash online, but I enjoy it a lot.

A solo game based on the new Star Trek movie. It is math-y, but fun. I like it.

I've only played this a couple of times, but it is a very solid game. The CCG nature of the game makes it something I wouldn't buy. Since the game is long dead, I was able to pick up a ton of cards on the cheap.

This is part one of a trilogy of games (just like the movies). What you will find here is actually a pretty solid game.

A very old game that is hard to track down. Not a bad game and I don't normally dig older games. I wish it could be remade with better components.

I like this game more than people online. While not perfect, it works for me. I don't like the draw cubes out of a cup, but the theme carries it and I like the art work from the movie. I'll never confess it as a great game, it is good enough for me.

All art is from the movie, so I am going to count it. This is a "starter" deck building game and it can be played with non-gamers and it will be easy for them learn the game. It has a hard mode with tougher bad guys.

Not a bad game at the right price. This is an abstract and not themed all that well.

As far as I know, Godzilla was a movie and (other than toys and possibly books made off the movies) is known as a movie. This game ended up being a purge but also a movie I decided to add back to my collection. A great game to play with your son and to destroy some buildings.

An okay game with bad components. It is trying to be Pandemic with a twist, it doesn't succeed on everything. Not a bad game if you can look past the bits. No Brad Pitt in the game.

A kids game that is not horrible. While the game does not follow any plot in the movie, it does include minis and art from the movie.

A small card game. It may not last you long and it may over stay its welcome. It is cheap, so you will likely get your money's worth.

The card game is not that great. The quality of the cards are horrible. It is okay as a beer and pretzels sort of game, but it can over stay a lot.

A monopoly clone, but different. This is based on the movie, not the tv show. Not much to see here unless you are a huge fan of the movie or want a cheap kids game.

Based off movie, not tv show. Zero decisions. Okay, there is one. Doesn't save the game.
